Inner Currents

Jeff Buckley would’ve been 50 years old on November 17th.  That endless river of a Scorpio Sun in the 4th house… with the slight distance, the ‘just out of grasp’ sung by a Moon six degrees into Aquarius…

“Just like the ocean, always in love with the Moon

It’s overflowing now, inside you

We fly right over the minds of so many in pain

We are the smile of light that brings the rain”

“Paranoia will write the world prayer

Make sure you fit in and fill the right holes

But when you take his offer you’re done for

Done for, ohhhhhhh”

“I’ve loved so many times and I’ve drowned them all

From their coral graves they rise up when darkness falls

With their bones they scratch the windows, I hear them call

‘Don’t know what you asked for’”


All the troubles are my fright, I disgust you 

Feel the power you cut the truth into you 

Why do you think I'd hidden out on this rely 

I could kiss you 

With lines of escape in my mouth 

Please let me bring back these gifts of mine to the woman

His eyes shined on my back as I slept and knew you 

You didn't leave it all 

You made an even call 

My belly released the stars 

And tears between the scars"

“Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners

Parading in a wake of sad relations as their shoes fill up with water

Well maybe I’m too young to keep good love from going wrong

But tonight you’re on my mind so, you never know”

“And I never stepped on the cracks because I thought I’d hurt my mother

And I couldn’t awake from the nightmare, it sucked me in and pulled me under

It pulled me under, oh

Oh that was so real

Oh that was so real “

( Scorpio Sun and Aquarius Moon, even in his fateful answer… )

[How would you like to be remembered?]

Jeff: “As a good friend. I don't really need to be remembered… I hope the music's remembered.”

Jeff Buckley drowned in the Tennessee River on May 29th, 1997, while waiting for his band to arrive and re-record his beautiful but painfully unfinished second album.  It was the same day Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins, who had a history with Jeff, recorded the vocals to Massive Attack's “Teardrop.”  She did so not yet knowing of his fate, and feels they are about him.

"Love, love is a verb

Love is a doing word

Fearless on my breath

Gentle impulsion

Shakes me, makes me lighter

Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire

Fearless on my breath"

A solar system sanctuary.
